Spend your summer in the wild! Learn about Mexican wolves, red wolves, maned wolves, swift foxes, fennec foxes, African painted dogs, and more from local animal experts and ambassadors. At Summer Wolf Camps at the Endangered Wolf Center, campers will unleash their inner field biologist and sniff out how stuff works in the wild, big and small. Children and teens will have the chance to let their inner artist shine as we travel, track & trot around the globe to discover unique animals and the incredible adaptations they use to survive.
Campers will meet on-site from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of their chosen camp week. Online activities will be hosted via Zoom meetings on Tuesdays and Thursdays in addition to self-directed, engaging activities the rest of the week via Flipgrid, a private social learning platform.
Tuition is $225/camper + $205 per additional camper of the same family OR $205/member + $185/additional member of the same family.
